The German-based footwear and clothing brand Dr. Martens enters three-way collaboration with Beams – a Japan-based clothing retailer and Babylon – a Los Angeles-based apparel label founded by punk band Trash Talk’s lead singer.
The legendary label is introducing the third installment in its 1460 re-mastered boot series on 28 March.
Also, the collaboration overlaps Dr. Martens’ 60th anniversary as it was launched on 1 April 1960. Known for its collaborations, Dr. Marten had earlier associated with Raf Simons, Jonathan Cohen, Japanese label Undercover and an eye candy with celebrities like Gigi Hadid.
Influenced by the Ska movement of the ‘60s, the single style boot blends a West Coast alternative skate aesthetic and a futuristic Japanese lens.
Beams’ signature orange double stripes down the heel, laces, heel loop and welt stitching update the classic boots.
With a Babylon slogan – ‘Chaos’ embossed on the quarters, the boot also features a triple-branded circle lace charm.
Commemorating Dr. Martens’ 60th anniversary, these boots come in bespoke packaging.
Noteworthy fact is that throughout the remainder of the year, Dr. Martens will be launching a new collaboration each month!
These boots were actually made for workers, worn by postal workers and police officers, but it was soon adopted by the youth culture, musicians and the punk movement.
The collection will be available at Dr. Martens website and select retail stores.
